- The Aventador S now gets 40hp of additional power from the same V12
- It comes with the 4-wheel steering that allows improved lateral control
- The exterior design on the Aventador S takes inspiration from the SV trim
At the outset, the 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S gets a subtle design revision with the aerodynamic body coming from the range-toping SV model. The Sant'Agata's flagship coupe features a more aggressive front end with a beefier splitter that redirects the airflow to improve cooling, while the front bumper has gained two side ducts to aid downforce. The new Aventador S also carries a striking resemblance to the Murcielago, to us at least.
At the rear, the 2017 Aventador S gets vertical fins like the Super Veloce that improves downforce and reduces drag, whereas there is also a newly developed exhaust system with three single tips, and the complete unit is now 20 per cent lighter than the one on the outgoing model. The active rear wing on the bull now comes with three positions based on the car's speed and drive select mode.
Given the list of changes, the 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S boasts of 130 per cent additional downforce at the front axle, while there is 50 per cent more downforce when the wing is in the most optimum position. To top that, Lamborghini says that the downforce can be further improved to a whopping 400 per cent in low-drag mode.
The improved exterior changes is now complemented by additional power. The Aventador S is now called 'LP 740-4' with the 6.5-litre V12 engine now producing 740hp (730bhp) of power, a bumper of 40hp over the outgoing version, while torque remains the same at 690Nm at 5500rpm. The engine revs have increased too from 8350rpm to 8500rpm. Transmission duty is handled by the 7-speed ISR unit that sends power to the wheels. With the additional power, the 0-100 kmph on the Aventador S in 2.9 seconds, and given the tarmac, a top speed of 350 kmph is attainable.
Things improve on the tech front as well for the 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S with it being the first series production model to receive four-wheel steering, which Lamborghini says aims to enhance lateral control by making the supercar more agile during low and medium speeds. It also increases stability at higher speeds. The Italian house has also worked around the pushrod and magneto-rheological suspension, which had to be adapted to the new four-wheel steering system.
In addition, you now get new bespoke Pirelli P Zero tyres on the Lamborghini Aventador S LP740-4 that help improve steering and traction and braking efficiency, while the ceramic brakes are now standard. Inside, the new Aventador S now comes with a new digital instrument cluster that gets multiple layouts based on the mode you are driving on - Strada, Corsa, Sport and the new configurable Ego. You also get the very lucrative Apple CarPlay that can be added as optional with a telemetry system.The new Lamborghini Aventador S will be going on sale across Europe by mid-2017 and yes, it will be heading to India as well next year.
